The tag was introduced when the sole Lintian check provided by the
xdeb package became part of Lintian. Given recent changes, it was too
cumbersome to keep filing bug reports [1] and merge requests [2] for
dependent packages. The relevant commit was:

For your package, it is clearly wrong to use the host as an indicator
for the intended binary architecture. Package names are a last resort;
can we use the file path, i.e. /usr/lib/gcc/$triplet/\d+/$target?
